Ontario MPP Cheri DiNovo Speaks Supporting Bill 80

Ontario MPP for Parkdale-High Park Cheri DiNovo has been one of the strongest political voices speaking on behalf of Marineland's animals and whistleblowers since 2012.  Here she is speaking again during recent debate on Bill 80 which is making its way through the Ontario legislature and if passed into law will effectively ban the acquisition and sale of orcas in the province.  The bill will also have provisions to heavily increase scrutiny over animal care at facilities like Marineland and hopefully improve their living conditions.  Still, Cheri makes it a point to speak about the last remaining orca at Marineland, Kiska and how she will not really benefit from being grandfathered into any new legislation.
